In the next edition of our Artist Top 10 Best Songs List feature, we take a look at the legendary discography of D’Angelo. This is a career that spans over 25 years and includes many timeless singles despite only three albums being released.
D’Angelo remains one of the most elusive R&B superstars you will find, but when he has taken the time to pop up to release a body of work, it’s always been of high quality. You can easily make an argument that the three albums he has released, “Brown Sugar”, “Voodoo”, and “Black Messiah” are classics, but we won’t take up that discussion here.
We simply revisited his catalog and attempted to identify which are the best songs he’s released so far. Of course we couldn’t help ourselves but to include a few honorable mention tracks as well.
Without further ado, here is our List of The Top 10 Best D’Angelo Songs in chronological order.
